Middle Position Ranges: Part 2

LD1977 - September 26th, 2016

In the first part of the article, I discussed only the opening ranges, which we use when we are the first player in the pot (= it has been folded to us). Now lets see what can we do in more complicated situations. Facing 3-bets Since our MP ranges are a bit wider than EP […]

Middle Position Ranges

LD1977 - August 25th, 2016

Articles on MP (Middle Position) and LP (Late Position) ranges are mainly intended for full ring tables (9 players) but are applicable for 6-max, assuming readers understand the relative positions: BB, SB, BTN and CO are the same on both types of tables MP (UTG+1) on 6-max table is MP on full ring table (called […]

Early Position Ranges

LD1977 - August 9th, 2016

This article will mainly be applicable to full ring tables (9 players) since the proposed ranges are too tight for 6-max. Ranges for 6-max will be discussed in the next article. Early position (EP) is first 2 seats on the table, namely UTG (under-the-gun) and UTG+1. Opening ranges (+ defense against aggression) EP has to […]

Aces Full of It: PokerTube.com Conclusion

Justin Buchanan - August 5th, 2016

Last time, I covered most of the rest of PokerTube’s tab categories. Today, we’ll wrap things up. Fair warning, I might get a little brief in places. Documentaries They seem to be using the term “documentary” a bit loosely here, but make no mistake: that’s a good thing.  There’s clips, full episodes, clips that are […]

Aces Full of It: PokerTube.com, Part Tres

Justin Buchanan - July 29th, 2016

Last time, I covered a few more of PokerTube’s categories and indicated the beginnings of an opinion shift. Today, both of those trends are probably going to continue (seeing as how I’m writing these particular words before actually checking out what I intend to fully). Poker Hands Me being wrong is appearing at this point to […]

Aces Full of It: PokerTube Tour Part 1

Justin Buchanan - July 14th, 2016

PokerTube Tour Part 1 I’ve decided to do something a little different. For quite a while now, I’ve been meaning to check out the website PokerTube, basically a collection of poker videos of many descriptions. I’m going to be doing this thoroughly, so this will be a multi-parter. And not just a two-parter, either!  So […]

Two Big Steps for Online Poker in U.S.

Todd McGee - July 11th, 2016

Are we getting closer to regulated online poker in the United States? State legislatures in Pennsylvania and California, two of the nation’s most populous states, have recently taken steps forward in legalizing and regulating online poker. Currently, Nevada, New Jersey, and Delaware are the only states that offer regulated online poker to citizens who reside […]

Aces Full of It: Outside Looking In

Justin Buchanan - June 23rd, 2016

Sometimes, I wonder why I hardly even bother to try playing in online cash games. Play them right, and they’re such a reliable profit, and it hardly even matters what level of stakes you’re in!  The same long run that I deride constantly as a tournament player really is some kind of Promised Land in […]

Aces Full of It: Mastering the Luck

Aces Full of It: Mastering the Luck

Justin Buchanan - May 10th, 2016

Every so often, I see a certain phrase related to poker bandied about on social media, usually as a meme of some kind, with images of varying applicability. That phrase is: “Poker is a combination of luck and skill. People think mastering the skill part is hard, but they’re wrong. The trick to poker is […]

Donk or Go Home

Donk or Go Home

Todd McGee - May 10th, 2016

Donk has to be one of the most over-used words in the chat rooms in all online poker sites. Every time somebody calls a big bet with a lesser hand and hits a card to win, Donk is inevitably thrown out in the chat room. Two instances recently really stand out in an MTT I […]
